If they keep up the schedule of two floors every two weeks....thats about four floors per month

2010:

August: 36
September: 40
October: 44
November: 48
December: 52

2011

January: 56
February: 60
March: 64
April: 68
May: 72
June: 76
July: 80
August: 84
September: 88
October: 92
November: 96
December: 100

So were looking at a signifigant impact on the skyline by this time next year, and topping out at the very end of 2011/ very beggining of 2012

One tiny thing there. The year has 52 weeks, not 48.

1WTC is really picking up speed now. I'm going to visit it early September so will take lots of photos.

Does anyone know when they will start on the facade? Thanks

Somebody asked that a few days ago, and the answer was third quarter of 2010. Which we are in, of course, so it might be soon.

By the schedule: WTC1 will be t/o in December of 2011; about cladding i assume in that date (December) the cladding should be installed, done in at least 60 - 70 floors (that's i think)

There is no way something like this could ever happen again, the people didnt know on those planes what the terrorists intentions were but now they do and they wont just stay seated if something like this happens again. I dont care what weapon you can sneak on a plane try fighting over a hundred pissed off people and see how it works out. The real problem now is trying to think what their going to try next now that that option is gone and the best bet would be a car bomb which is going to be extremely hard to get near these buildings with the way security is going to be. The new wtc complex is probally going to be the safest place to be in new york city, they have many other options they could use at some other landmark in new york which doesnt have rediculous security measures. Thats why all of new york has to keep a lookout for suspicious things like the guy who stopped the times square bomb, who is a hero. So go visit the new wtc!
and besides, if such a hijack did happen again, it's not as if a no-fly zone in the area would be a deterrent.

At first I didn't think so because I thought that the cladding pieces were much bigger- but then I looked at the renders and it might be possible:
